    No peaking now, of course since we know everything who would need too !!

    There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar.
    Can you name at least half of them ?

    Ok, since that was so easy here's a simpler one.

    Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed,cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

    Now, if I give you 50 coins, and they total 1.00, what coins did I give you?

    Let's see;
    2 dimes, 8 nickles, and 40 pennies
    That's remembering from long, long ago from making change the old way.
    I get aggravated when they can't count out my change correctly now a days.

    iddee leaves me with the hard ones.
    Okay, here we go... parentheses, bracket, hyphen, dash, ellipsis...
    Dang it. Now I'm going to have to go look this up!

    Not sure if things like slash, octothorpe (I love that word), "number" sign, and ampersand are considered "punctuation."

    Edited after cheating: I can't believe I missed "apostrophe"!!!

    WBB - you have to give iddee credit for "question mark." I know he's familiar with them.... I send plenty his way.

    As for "braces," they just bring back bad memories of my Jr. high years. *shudder*

    I agree, the question mark was a given. It hadn't been named tho' only used.

    If it wasn't for you mentioning the "Ellipsis" I would've never figured it out...in fact...I have been using them incorrectly...!

    I never had to wear braces, only learn what they are and make pudding for my friends who did wear them. :D

    My sister is an editor. We learn odd things from her. For instance, the phrase "begs the question" does NOT mean "raises the question" - but everyone uses it incorrectly.
